              "For the love of God, Why?!"

              I cannot see any use, advantages from configuring NLB on a DC.
              Yet come to think about the idea, if the records (SRV,A and PTR) are setup correctly, i do not see why it would NOT work. Yet again, you will not gain any advantages from configuring a NLB on a a DC.

              Why do you want to implement NLB?
              What are you hoping to gain?

              I would not use a domain controller as webserver....

                  it's not a bad idea, it's a useless idea

                    Re: Network Load Balancing on Domain Controller

                    Well, the idea is indeed quite useless as you can not load balance the functions of DC. Just consider the following:
                    • When you talk to KDC you have to talk ti it using it's DNS name. You are not allowed to use FQDNs that are not the DC's primary DNS name (if you were allowed that would break the whole security model of Kerberos)
                    • If you use PKI and deploy Domain Controller certificates, you will not be able to load balance the SSL enabled services
                    • Accessing shares (SYSVOL anyone?) using names other than primary NETBIOS or computer FQDN (or in the case of DCs domain FQDN) is not allowed
                    • The list goes on and on, but the point is that ewdundance of DCs is implemented using other methods - there is no need to load balance the DCs

                    And if the whole point is running IIS on DCs, well... in this case you have much bigger problems if you ask me.
